Hi, I need to count the number of male students and the number of female students who are predicted to get the same grade level.

Column A = Student name
Column B = Male or Female (M/F)
Column C = Predicted Grade (single number e.g 2)
Column D = Target Grade (single number e.g 3)

A1 = John
B1 = M
C1 = 2
D1 = 3

A2 = Mary
B2 = F
C2 = 2
D2 = 3

G1 = Female Predicted Grade 2
H1 = Male Predicted Grade 2
G2 = Female Predicted Grade 3
H2 = Male Predicted Grade 3

How do I tell Excel to compare two cells and if it meets a requirement to then count and then put in another cell?

E.g If B2 = F and C2 = 2 then count and put in G1 and then continue checking & comparing the rest of column B & C.

Can anyone help me?!?!
Thanks, Sandra

How to total the visible cells?
From the first blank cell below a filtered data set, press Alt+=. Instead of SUM, you will get SUBTOTAL(9,)

Thank you :)

Wow! Thanks you are a genius. I have put this in the spreadsheet and told the teacher, there is one happier teacher in the world so maybe her students will have an easy afternoon!
